BOSTON -- Manny Ramirez is severing one of his last ties to Boston.

The former Red Sox outfielder put his Boston penthouse condominium on the market for $8.5 million on Wednesday, the same day he agreed to a $45-million deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Michael Doherty of City Life Real Estate, the listing broker for the 37th-floor condominium at the Residences at the Ritz-Carlton, tells the Boston Herald it's the "most magnificent apartment" in the city.

In addition to panoramic views of the city, the 4,500-square-foot condo has four bedrooms, six bathrooms and three valet parking spaces.

Ramirez paid $5.8 million for the condo in 2001, and put it on the market for $6.9 million in 2005.
